The First Day of Summer in Iceland
Today marks the official start of summer here in Iceland. Schools are closed and we celebrate, some of us even receive a little gift that has to do with summer, maybe a skipping rope or a kite.
There is also a Children´s Cultural Festival going on in Reykjavik so there is an unusual amount of activities to choose from.
The Festival is held now for the second time 17.-22. of April. With almost 200 events to choose from the aim is to increase cultural interest with children.
The picture above is from the opening event where 1100 9-10 year olds danced in synchrony at the Harpa Concert Hall by the harbour.
There are so many activities to choose from, including: Lego workshop, kite factory, Biophilia music factory, Origami, Charlie Chaplin´s The Circus at the cinema and so on and so on...
